THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) has done nothing since 1962 to strengthen its defences in the Himalayas. Now there is no leader who can give guidance on the imbroglio in Ladakh. Generals fight and Diplomats talk, not vice versa. – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune, Dated 4th June 2020.
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:– Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the author Mr. Palden Sonam has not given us much information on the imbroglio we are facing in the Himalayas. He writes about the Corona Virus pandemic hindering the Hindu Indian States preparedness in the high mountains. This should not be an excuse for negligence by the BJP – RSS Union Government and its Premier and the Defence and Home Ministers.
In 1962 the Hindu State surrendered 39,000 SQ. KMS. of Ladakh territory to Communist China. Since then there has been enough time to meet any ingress on the LAC.
The Hindu State has not produced any modern weapons and it is a shame that it is importing the basic infantry weapon, the rifle from the USA. Currently I will acquire 72,400 rifles but it needs 700,000 rifles, 44,000 light Machine Guns (LMGs) and nearly 44,600 Carbines. In the Sikh Empire (1799 – 1849) the Lahore Darbar manufactured the best arms including Canons which matched any manufactured in Europe. They can be seen in museums in UK and Lahore.
There has been too much corruption in the import of weapons from abroad since 1947. First it was a practice, then a tradition and now it is a convention. Even in the Helicopter scandal, the main culprits have not been arrested like the former Governor of Bengal, the former head of the Premiers security Chief and late Premier Vajayape’s top Secretary’s relative married to a wealthy man in Italy. In the Rafale Jet deal a big scandal is suspected but it is being denied by the BJP – RSS Government.
The author states that Communist China uses deception as a policy. May we asks that didn’t Gandhi, Nehru and Patel make promises to the Sikhs that if they joined Hindu India in 1947, they would be given an area where they would feel the glow of freedom. Instead of this the Sikhs faced the biggest ethnic cleansing in history in 1947, then the Sikh highest seat of worship the Darbar Sahib and its complex was reduced to rubble, the treasury looted by the Army and the Sikh Reference Library taken away as a war trophy. All this was vandalism and the commission of the crime of memoricide. All these are international crimes that in the future will be tried in the International Criminal Court at the Hague. Later that year, 1984, late Premier Rajiv Gandhi committed the crime of Genocide of the Sikh peoples. All these crimes have been committed with impunity.
The Hindu Indian State is at war with its own people in Chattisgarh, Madhya Pardesh, Bihar, Orissa, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Kashmir, the North East and the Sikhs do not enjoy the fundamental rights as per articles 14, 19, 21 and 25. Article 25 states that the Sikhs are a part of the Hindu religion. This is an insult.
A new front has been opened with a small country like Nepal. It has become a cartographic war. General Naravane is on record of teaching Nepal a lesson. Such belligerent words coming from the Army Commander appear to be naïve and insulting as the best battalions of his army are Gorkhas from Nepal and our party sees Nepal as a buffer between the Hindu State and Communist China. Why do Generals Rawat and Naravane want to come in direct confrontation with the PLA when they are not capable to hold the ground on the McMahon Line – ?
We must remind the majoritarians that it was the Lahore Darbar (Sikh Empire 1799 – 1849) that annexed Ladakh in 1834, which became an integral part of the Sikh Empire. Today there is no Sikh in Premier Nerandra Modi’s Cabinet Committee on security and the Sikhs have no say in THIS‘s (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) foreign, defence, home and finance affairs.
If the policy of the Hindu State is to sideline the Sikhs and the Gorkhas and create chaos in Central and its Border states then our party does not see the Hindu state negotiating with the Chinese as equals. It’s good that the Generals of both sides will meet on 06 June 2020 in Ladakh at Chushul – Moldo, but the fact is that Generals fight and Diplomats talk.
